Benjamin Radford

Reflections on a Decade of Paranormal Investigation

Reception to follow

 

If you've ever wondered about the truth behind claims of the supernatural and paranormal, we invite you to join writer and scientific paranormal investigator Benjamin Radford as he explores "unexplained mysteries" in his talk "Reflections on a Decade of Paranormal Investigation." In his talk, Radford will address topics such as ghosts, Bigfoot, crop circles, and psychic powers. What does science say about the evidence for these? What is the nature of the "unexplained"? And why is there still debate about these issues? He welcomes both skeptics and believers, and there will be plenty of time for audience interaction.

Among Ben's many accomplishments, is designing the board game so popular on campuses, "Playing Gods", wherein the familiar gods attempt to annihilate each other's adherents, thus proving themselves to be #1.
